    my friends LCD/TFT monitor is turning off/on constantly - turns on for fraction of a second then repeats every 1-2 seconds... we tried his old Acer CRT monitor which worked fine - the TFT monitor isnt a known brand - we didnt have another VGA cable to try

    does anyone know why its doing this and is there a fix?

    thanks

    Monitor is destined for recycling. Faults range from faulty PCB to transistors. If you know a good local repair shop....get a quote before you replace. Last 3 like this at school all needed replacing.
